"Black Damnation II is yet another blend with the use of Hel & Verdoemenis from Brouwerij De Molen. This time even more complex than BD I.

50% of Black Albert was used that matured for a while on whole coffee beans out of a craft Columbian coffee plantation. 25% of H &V was used that aged for 6 months on JD barrels. Another 25% of Cuvée Delphine was used."

2010 bottle, first batch in 33cl bottle. Too old for coffee but still good.

Bottle shared last night at Umberto's tasting. '12 vintage.

Pours a fairly dark black, with a half inch head, not a whole lot in that department, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells a lot like Jack Daniels, honestly- that portion of the blend really stands out. I also get a good amount of creamy coffee and sweet chocolate.

For me, this is a big step up from regular Black Albert. I don't get a whole lot of the big dark sweet fruit flavor that Black Albert provides in spades, it's still pretty sweet though, creamy sweet chocolate, and iced coffee with sweet vanilla creamer come through very strongly. The booze doesn't show all that strongly, which is nice, and probably a product of the beer's age.

This has an unbelievably creamy and smooth mouthfeel, with a lower level of carbonation. This is really, really drinkable.

I'm not entirely sure if this is worth the $42 price tag, but it's definitely tasty, and you can tell a lot of work when into creating this one.

Bottle pour at Shelton Brothers The Festival 2014 held at Crafted in San Pedro, CA.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee bean, and dark fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, coffee, and slight smoke flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness and an alcohol kick on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is quite boozy but has a nice mix of cocoa and coffee qualities.

Serving type: bottle.
